Singer Billie Eilish played a role in convincing Oscar de la Renta to stop using fur.
Eilish, a Oscar de la Renta bride, posted about her conversation on Instagram.
“The entire team heard me on this issue, and have now made a change that makes an impact for the greater good, not only for animals but also for our planet and environment too,” Eilish said.
Alex Bolen, the brand’s CEO, told The New York Times that he made the decision to stop selling fur after his conversation with Eilish, who refuses to work with designers who use fur.
“I have to surround myself with people with different points of view,” he said.
Bolen had previously refused to stop using fur—even after calls from his wife and Oscar de la Renta’s widow.
The Hill Reports indicate that Prada, Versace and Gucci have stopped using fur in their designs.
